The wine

Corimbo is a very highly-regarded wine in top-end restaurants due to its quality and pleasantness. It encapsulates to perfection the countryside in the northern part of the Ribera del Duero, encompassing all its ancestry, and always with great finesse. An abundance of ripe black fruit and the oak very well integrated at all times, creating a serious and elegant wine.

What does this wine taste like?

A strong colour, a Picota cherry shade overall with dark red at the rim. It reveals an intense nose, brimming with red and black fruit (cherries and blackberries). It has great expressivity, bringing to mind aromatic plants and the smell of pine groves after rain. The creamy oak is very well-integrated, letting the fruit and the countryside show through. It has plenty of volume, mouth-filling, giving a sensation of fullness with every sip.

Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The style is pretty homogeneous, but you notice the challenges of the 2017 vintage in the 2017 Corimbo, which doesn't reach the subtleness and refinement of the 2016 I tasted next to it. It comes through as a little more rustic, especially in the texture of the tannins. However, the wine keeps its poise with ripe black fruit, integrated oak and a soft mouthfeel. It was a low-yielding and early harvest when they produced 62,400 bottles.
